At Honolulu Pain Relief Center, our chiropractors are here to help provide pain relief after experiencing an injury. However, something that many people do not realize is that, in addition to being injured, there are plenty of other signs that indicate that you should visit a chiropractor. If you are interested in learning about what sorts of signs to look out for that will signify it’s time for you to pay a visit to our Honolulu chiropractor, keep reading below!
There can be a number of reasons that you experience mild to severe headaches. Some of the most common causes, however, are dehydration, malnutrition, oxygen deprivation, or misalignment of the neck or spine. If you experience frequent headaches, it is a good idea to visit a reputable chiropractor to provide headache relief. With a simple chiropractic adjustment, your headache symptoms can be relieved due to the improved blood flow, which helps increase the amount of oxygen supplied to the brain. Regularly visiting a chiropractor for adjustments may help reduce the frequency of headaches.
Chronic Back Pain
Clearly, if you are experiencing severe or chronic back pain, it is an obvious sign to head to the chiropractor’s office. While there are many things that can contribute to experiencing chronic back pain, such as your posture, type of work, and how many hours a day you are on your feet. Our Honolulu chiropractor will do everything possible to provide back pain treatment and relief so that you do not have to opt for invasive surgeries or prescription medications.
Muscle or Joint Pain
When people are experiencing aches and pains, they tend to head for the medicine cabinet to grab the aspirin. While pain relievers may provide temporary pain relief, what many people do not realize is that the aches and pains could potentially be due to issues with the musculoskeletal alignment. The body functions as one unit with numerous moving parts, and like a car engine, when any one of those parts fall out of place, the entire system can be susceptible to issues. A chiropractor is trained professionally to ensure that all of your body parts function optimally. They may relieve muscle and joint pain by using spinal manipulations. These adjustments will increase the nerve conductivity and blood flow to the muscles and joints that are in pain.
If your job requires being hunched over your keyboard, it is completely normal that your posture would suffer. Staying in a hunched position for extended periods of time can put a lot of strain on your upper back, shoulders, and neck, which could potentially cause your bones and discs to shift. A chiropractor will be able to perform a spinal adjustment to correct these issues.
Soles of Shoes Wear Out Differently
While this is a fairly odd indicator, but if the soles of your shoes wear out differently, it could be a sign that your spine is out of the proper alignment. Uneven wear on your shoes is actually a reliable indicator that you are experiencing a subluxation in the spine and need a spinal manipulation to put your spine back into alignment so that the problem does not continue and turn into a chronic issue.
Sharp Leg Pain
Sharp pain shooting down the leg, tingling, or weakness may be a sign of a pinched nerve or slipped disc. Many people that experience these issues visit their doctor or physical therapist in search of leg pain relief. When they are unable to provide relief, a chiropractor may be able to offer a solution. In the event that traditional treatment has been unsuccessful, it’s possible that a compressed nerve is the cause of the problem. A chiropractor will examine you and perform a spinal adjustment to alleviate the pressure that is being placed on the nerve and causing pain.
Active Or Involved In Sports
While living an active lifestyle or being involved in sports or exercising is great for your overall health and well-being, certain activities can put strain and pressure on your body. It’s common for the stress associated with these activities to cause your spine to come out of alignment. Additionally, engaging in these activities can make the body more susceptible to pinched nerves, slipped discs, and other alignment issues. If you are an active person, visiting a chiropractic doctor on a regular basis will help to keep your body functioning optimally so that you can continue to enjoy your activities.
Limited Range of Motion
If you feel that your arms and legs are not as flexible as they have been in the past or if you are unable to turn your neck in one direction or the other without any pain, then you may need to pay a visit to a chiropractor. Stiff muscles and limited blood flow can contribute to a decrease in your overall flexibility and a chiropractor can make adjustments to loosen muscles, increase blood flow, and realign bones and joints to increase the body’s range of motion. Having a normal range of motion will help the body to function optimally.
Recently In A Car Accident

Our chiropractors at Honolulu Pain Relief Center specialize in auto injury treatment and relief. From whiplash relief, treatment for back pain and neck pain toother injury relief, professional chiropractors will be able to provide you with the help that you need after being involved in a motorcycle or car collision.
A Desire To Be More Health Conscious
Everyone wouldn’t mind being in a healthier state than they currently are in, and if you want to live a more health conscious life or just want to become more aware of how to better care for your body, your chiropractor will be able to help by providing you with exercise routines, nutritional guidance, and specific techniques to help relieve the stress and strain on your body.

As you can see, there are plenty of signs that indicate it’s time for a chiropractic appointment in addition to getting injured. Even when you aren’t in much pain, it is a good idea to regularly visit a chiropractor to keep your back, spine, and body in proper working condition.
